    The Republican Utopia

    thanks for the history lesson... I know that stumping during mid-terms for your party's candidates is common, or at least since 1923...but was addressing the constant cycle since almost immediately after the general election.

    The Republican Utopia

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/made-by-history/wp/2017/07/25/president-trumps-rallies-are-about-boosting-his-ego-not-his-agenda/?utm_term=.7e4987e7b8a2 "Trump’s tactics aren’t new, but his agenda is. His emotional campaigning serves solely as a tool for self-aggrandizement, rather than fulfilling its historic function of channeling voter enthusiasm toward a particular legislative program. His rallies, which are notably about him and not about policies, raise deep concerns about a president who uses emotional politics to build a cult of personality rather than to pass laws."

    Turning Point

    Frost said this was the "best week of practice...again" and kind of chuckled about it. That is what he said prior to last week, and they coulda/woulda/shoulda been in that game without all the stupid mental mistakes. Hopefully, we will have a game where everyone "gets it", hopefully that game is Saturday, and once it happens, we will have turned the corner

    and, when did these "rallies" become a thing? It seems like we've never left the campaign period... between the rallies themselves, travelling to and from the last one to the next one, weekends at "the club", and incessant tweeting, when does the President actually attend to Presidential business?

    2018 Season Record

    my dad and I talked about this over the weekend...both have been pretty pessimistic regarding the remaining season. I say we will get a W the next three weeks (NW, Minn, BC) and I added Illinois, for four. My dad believes two W's (BC and Illinois).

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    I think you are exactly right...humor...like sarcasm...is often in the eye of the beholder easily misinterpreted. haha!

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    his assertion didn't need fixing...he said he "thinks" that people are viewing this as a partisan matter...you said he "thinks wrong" speaking not for yourself, but for everyone else here.... and this isn't a presidential nominee process... (that was my point)

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    Ah, gotcha...ideology not affiliation...thanks. I registered Repub at age 18, many moons ago, because my parents both were...I stayed registered Repub because if I change party affiliation to Independent it makes it difficult to vote in the primary

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    "we" meaning who, exactly? I believe knapplc was referring to Independents? I have always identified (registered) Republican...but definitely lean Democrat. My neighbor calls me the most liberal conservative he has ever known ""The percentage of people who identify as or lean Republican has fallen 5 points from 42 percent of the population to 37 percent, according to the poll comparing November 2016 with November 2017, which was released last week. The percentage of voters identifying as Democratic has remained at 44 percent.Dec 10, 2017"" https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=8&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiP4OXnpszdAhVEI6wKHZ55CAcQFjAHegQIBhAR&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.huffingtonpost.com%2Fentry%2Frepublican-percentage-drops-gallup_us_5a2dbf49e4b069ec48ae6aec&usg=AOvVaw0k0-OrNklCJNvHXsXKPU5E

    Racism - It's a real thing.

    ah, I see the distinction now...but stand by my former statement
